Edith Södergran föddes 1892 och dog 1923. Hon debuterade med Dikter 1916 och hela hennes korta, intensiva och oerhört betydelsefulla författarskap hör till 1910- och 20-talens litterära guldålder i Finland. Med tiden blev hon för många modernistgenerationens främsta författare - en ikon och en fixstjärna som påverkar författare ännu idag. Edith Södergrans produktion är liten och hon vistades långa perioder utomlands, först i Sankt Petersburg där hon gick i skola och senare på en rad sanatorier ute i Europa. Hon förstörde själv en del av sin biografiska kvarlåtenskap, bland annat brev, och när hon dog var fältet fritt för biografisk spekulation och mytbildning. Hennes vän Hagar Olsson hade sin "Edith", likaså Elmer Diktonius, och Södergrans första biograf Gunnar Tideström byggde på mytbildningen och levererade en psykologisk-biografisk läsning av dikterna som senare tiders Södergranforskare har haft svårt att skaka av sig. Litteraturforskaren Agneta Rahikainen har studerat Edith Södergran alltsedan 1990-talet, och i Kampen om Edith är det författarmytens "långsamt döende, missförstådda och överspända poetissa" hon ifrågasätter. Forskningsprocessen har inneburit en del avancerat detektivarbete och flera intressanta upptäckter. En ny Edith Södergran kan till exempel karakteriseras så här: Den Södergran jag vaskat fram är en ung, levnadsglad kvinna, humoristisk, självironisk, okonventionell, resvan, social, rörlig, nyfiken, ombytlig och alert. Hon är högt bildad för sin tid och beläst, hon har en stark upprorslust och är fullkomligt kompromisslös i sin övertygelse. Och hon lever i hög grad med fingret på tidens puls. Hennes humor och självironi är genomgripande och ständigt blir man påmind om att hon inte alltid tog sig själv på alltför stort allvar

"The Poet And Her Apostles A biomythographical analysis of the image of Edith Södergran. This dissertation is about the constructions and biographical interpretations of the life of the poet Edith Södergran that have emerged since her death in 1923. I investigate what lies behind the agendas and approaches of biographers and scholars, the sources and authorities on which they base their findings and the sources and authorities they have chosen to ignore, and if so, why. I also explore the ways in which they have interpreted her work and placed it in a literary canon. To support my analysis I have made use of Michael Benton's study Literary Biography. An Introduction (2009). Benton employs the concept of biomythography to signify a biography that reflects the dependence of facts on the manner in which they are produced, as well as on cultural context and change. My biomythographical analysis examines these aspects with reference to the ways in which the various interpretations of Södergran are constructed. As a method I have also used parts of a model from Petra Broomans dissertation Jag vill vara mig själv . Stina Aronson (1892-1956), ett litteraturhistoriskt öde (1999), which she based on Hayden White's theory of narrative linguistic expressions in historical research, as expressed in his book Meta History: The Historical Imagination in Nineteenth-Century Europe (1973). I focus on those aspects of Södergran's life that are relevant to the way in which the myths surrounding her emerged, her linguistic and cultural background, her social contacts, medical history, financial situation, ideological interests, position and attitude in literary politics, and the environments in which she lived. I also describe the contemporary reception of her work and the images that it created. Hagar Olsson and Elmer Diktonius are important actors in the early constructions of Södergran's image. The work of her biographer Gunnar Tideström and the scholar Olof Enckell were to a large extent influenced by Hagar Olsson s interpretation of Södergran as it was later manifested in her edition of the poet's letters (Ediths brev, 1955). In the last chapter before the conclusion I describe how the various images of Södergran appear in reference works of literary history, which of the myths about her have survived and which of them have to this day been downplayed."--Publisher's info
